Quote:
Mayhew portrayed Chewbacca in the original Star Wars in 1977. He would reprise the role in The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. He shared the role with Joonas Suotamo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, before letting Suotamo take on the role for StarWars: The Last Jedi, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

He has portrayed Chewbacca in a few other Star Wars projects, including the Star Wars Holiday Special.

Damn, such a sad bit of news. I never got to officially meet him at a convention, but I was in a line next to his table back in 2005 and he was pretty friendly to those coming up to him.
